Watch Dodsworth - Alternative Versions.
"Dodsworth" has been on my short list of must-see films for decades,
and I finally had my chance to see it last night. I'm still in awe.
(Others have made cogent observations about the acting of the other
principals in the cast, so I will confine my comments specifically to
Walter Huston.) There are people who will complain that this film is
"slow," that it is "boring," that "nothing ever happens in it." Too bad
for them, because this is a master class in acting of the highest
It is difficult to pull off a film like "Dodsworth" without betraying
its stage origins, but this one feels and moves like a movie, not a
play. (Of course, its genesis is a lengthy Sinclair Lewis novel, but
the contributions of the gifted Sidney Howard -- who adapted the novel
for the stage and the screen -- cannot be overlooked.) Walter Huston,
who also played Sam Dodsworth in the Broadway play, was that rarest of
actors, equally adept at playing to the back row of the balcony and
giving a quiet wink to another 20-foot-tall face on a movie screen.
Anyone can buff up and wield a sword or tumble from a parking garage
after being shot eleven times. But it takes a truly gifted screen actor
to make the mundane seem utterly real; to shade a line just so, to
achieve perfect pitch with every gesture, every glance. Huston was just
such an actor, who, if he is remembered at all today it as John
Huston's father, or the "old guy" in "The Treasure of the Sierra
Madre." Too bad again, because Huston was one of the finest actors in
the history of American movies. He was not a movie star, but he totally
embodied every role he ever played, and never gave a poor performance.
The narrative of "Dodsworth" is mature, intelligently handled material.
It is impeccably directed by William Wyler. No one has ever remade it,
though remakes have been considered. There are directors working today
who could handle "Dodsworth," but it really merits more sophisticated
treatment than the extensive nudity and profusion of strong language
that would inevitably be written into a new script. It's much better
left alone, and it deserves a far larger audience than it has ever had
in the 68 years since its release.
